Adventure Guides

YMCA Adventure Guides leads a father (or male role model) and a child on a journey of discovery and uninterrupted time together as members of a larger group.  Lifelong memories and bonds are built between dad and child through group meetings, games, ceremonies and weekend camping trips.


Updates for 2017-2018

  • 4th graders are officially included in the program
  • Spring Campouts are now open to ALL Circles to allow more flexibility around the many school carnivals, auctions, etc. However, all Circles must commit to which Spring Campouts they will attend by 12/1/17.
  • Navigator’s Meetings for 2017-2018 will be bi-monthly instead of the historically monthly meetings to encourage better attendance.
  • The Fall Campout for PreK4 and first year Circles will be a one-day (not overnight) campout at Camp on the Lake (in Lewisville) and will include a day full of activities culminating with an Induction Ceremony.
  • To accommodate our growing numbers, the Annual Sweetheart Dance will be offered two separate nights and participants will be allowed to choose whichever night works best for their schedules.
  • Registration periods are now broken up into “Early”, Open” and “Late” to reward/encourage parents registering early!
